I recommend last year's Newbery medal winner, The One and Only Ivan by Katherine Applegate. The characters are animals and mostly male but still would be great for an 11 year old girl (or boy).

Did your fiance attend his son's school conference? Usually, that would have been held by now or will be scheduled very soon. If he didn't attend, could he ask Mom for a copy of son's progress as the...

Can you recommend a digital, wi-fi, email photo frame?

I'm thinking this would be a good gift for the grandparents this year. But ideally, I'd not pay more than $100.00. One the other hand I'm not sure if I can get a quality one for that price.

Hi again,
 
I am a single Mom (sole financial support) and work in academia (non-PhD). The beauty of an academic job is the security. If you don't think your position has that, I suggest eeking it...

Just think of it as a rough, bad patch but it won't be forever. It will be a bad six months or so but not forever by any means. I would not shield them from this rough time. You do what you need to...

This doesn't sound like a good way to live. I'd get an apartment and at the very least call it a trial separation. If he gets his act together with employment and becomes a better partner perhaps...

Hi,
 
I just wanted to say, as a single Mom I've been in this situation. No idea how a cup worked. My father is deceased, and I have no brothers to ask.
 
Funny to realize I'm not alone. Thanks...

I'd say no to him due to the tenants in the house. Your daughter doesn't know them the way his son who lives there does. Instead I'd tell him that DD can "learn to love him" by playing in the park...
